Hi, I've recently applied to a few universities, and I've got offers. I heard there was something called an insurance choice that you can make as a backup after making your firm choice (1st choice), but is it good to have an insurance choice for University or not? Does it affect the application in any way?I am not too sure about how this works and I'd be happy to get some advice, thanks! (:

Your insurance uni choice is one where you are confident you can get the grades. Your preferred uni is your 'stretch' uni - you may not get the grades. Thus, you will have your insurance uni as your fall-back uni.

Ahh, that makes sense, so my firm choice is the one I would want to go to, whereas, my insurance is the one I'd most likely be able to get grade-wise, thank you so much!!

That’s basically it but don’t put down an insurance choice you wouldn’t actually want to attend just because it’s your lowest offer. Both choices should be Unis you would be happy to go too - but your Firm choice may be slightly more aspirational
